Minimizing DIY

Here’s me, always trying to stick it to the man.  So far, I’ve been able to get away with it.

Tomorrow, Hubs and I are going to Myrtle Beach for a Battalion Reunion.  This means, per airline regulations, that I may not bring on the plane anything in gel or liquid form that is more than 3 oz.

In order to comply with The Man, and still be fashionable in, what I will suspect is going to be 100% humidity this weekend, I had to make some adjustments to get what I normally use, into containers that are approved.  I took this hair gel:

And used a common cattle syringe, the same one’s I used for the Jello Shots in October, to transfer the gel from the large container to something a little more manageable. 

It took 5 transfers and a VERY ridiculous stance, which included me bending halfway over with the big bottle under my left arm and the syringe pinched precariously in my hands, but I got all the gel I will need for the upcoming weekend in a bottle less than 2 oz in volume.

Suck it, The Man!



  1. You are crazy and adorable…but next time you should just buy the travel size. SOOO much easier

  2. Come back. 🙂
